Apologies first and foremost as I realize this is rather long. I'm not gifted with words and am trying to represent myself accurately. I know that some of you may have short attention spans but please do me the courtesy of reading my entire profile as I will do the same for you.
I am not going to tell you everything, almost everything but not all of it. After all isn't part of the joy of getting to know someone, actually getting to know them? That being said some brief self-statements are in order. I'll try not to bore you while using the pronoun "I", ad nauseam. Plus, the details of my life are quite inconsequential. **Dr. Evil Laugh** Here you go....

What I'm looking for:
As stated I prefer women. Redheads are my favorite but not mandatory. I like petite women as I am somewhat skinny/smallish myself but have dated girls with curves before and its been fine. It would be nice to date another bisexual person but if you're open minded about those things that is good. A woman that can cook would be amazing. Someone who is independent, has a strong character and sees the big picture in love and life. It is important that you have some self awareness, some shared interests and the desire to really connect with others on a deep and meaningful level, as well as a silly not so serious one. Please have a sense of humor. While I agree that a man should initiate things we do live in 2013 and an aggressive woman is a turn on. Patience is important too. Not looking for random hook ups. Please don't be afraid to talk about yourself. Show me how talented, dorky, smart, and/or amazing you are. Smarts are a turn on. Both street and book ones. Relationships are a two way street and both parties need to make an effort. If you do message me please show me that you actually read my profile and attempt some form of worthy conversation. If you need a hint, discuss music or history with me. While it is flattering,I'm not going to respond to "you are cute" , "i want to get in your pants" comments. I want to get in someones pants too but there is a process to follow here. I tend to take things pretty slow, maybe it's my Capricorn moon, so don't have expectations right off the bat please. Lets communicate and see where things go. I'm very easy going and don't get worked up much so please be of a similar temperament. Enjoy the process of getting to know someone it really is much fun. I hope you all find what you are looking for.
